Neil Warnock: Charged with turning around Cardiff form

Neil Warnock is set to pledge his future to Rotherham United by agreeing to stay on at the club, sources have told

Former Leeds and Sheffield United boss Warnock, who was linked with the Newcastle hot-seat in the Sunday People, initially took over at Rotherham in February on a short-term deal until the end of the season.

When Warnock took over Rotherham were six points adrift of safety, but the 67-year-old led them out of the Championship drop zone, winning six of eight games at one stage to eventually finish nine points clear of relegation.

Warnock admitted he wanted to take some time out after the season to weigh up his options with Rotherham desperate to keep him.

A number of other clubs have expressed an interest in Warnock as a result of his impressive work at Rotherham, but it appears Warnock is set to stay at the New York Stadium.

Rotherham are hopeful of finalising a new deal with Warnock as early this week so that they get their plans ready for next season as they look to avoid another relegation battle.
